. >> we go back to capitol hill. no laughs there. kathleen sebelius once again was in the hot seat. max baucus who heads up the senate finance committee where she sat down at the witness table yesterday, remember he helped write the law. the last time she was there, he referred to the affordable care act implementation as a potential train wreck. he said he was unhappy with it. but bill nelson, the democrat from florida, summed it up when he was talking about the contractors responsible for the affordable care act website. he said, quote, i want you to burn their fingers and make them pay for not being responsible. she would not agree to that. >> john cornyn actually -- this is the most incredible thing today. he actually -- john cornyn -- gets in there and says i have a simple question. the people that will have all of our information, which we're assuming might be at risk, is there a background check on them. listen to this conversation. >> isn't it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check even though they will receive personal --
up every now and then. take a listen to what kathleen sebelius said when she was asked about the obamacare navigators. >> a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them? >> that is possible. >> so it's possible. a felon could be handling your personal information while you're trying to sign up for obamacare. you add that to the addition that hackers have been licking their chops about this hinge. we have to bring our next guest, a guy who knows a whole lot about cyber security. let's bring in mcafee antivirus software founder, john mack canfy. john, where do you want to begin on this? let's start with the structure of the website and how easy it is to steal people's information. >> well, let's start with who is most likely to steal your information. charles: okay. >> a couple of weeks ago it was pointed out that in the source code there was a statement, you have no reasonable right to privacy or no reasonable expectations of privacy and any data submitted to this site can be used by any agency for

-- a microscope to the health- care law. in addition to what we have seen with kathleen sebelius and marilyn tavenner, they may want againr from the top brass as to whether they want to update their thinking on a law. we may get more big picture stuff in december. host: more about life on the hill. here is "the wall street journal." thatg the point immigration, tax reform, a budget breakthrough, things are on hold or frozen. what does it mean? guest: the affordable care act takes oxygen out of the room. it is so politically potent. it affects everyone's constituents. they are getting the most calls on it, too. it provokes strong feelings. the agenda has come to a standstill, there is evidence that some of these things were at a standstill already. the affordable care act, that is how you fill the vacuum at a standstill. over the summer, when immigration was a big topic. when it became clear that that was stalling, the affordable care act came back with a vengeance. that was the issue everyone wanted to talk about. there is some truth that it gets in the way of everything else. also, it is a
picture of a keg. >> that was republican congressman grilling kathleen sebelius this week. he was referring to an ad campaign. this features a college student doing a keg stand captioned don't tap into that beer money to cover your medical bills. joining me is adam fox, director of the strategic management for the colorado consumer health initiative. adam, it's good to have you here. what was your reaction when that happened on capitol hill? when the congressman was trying to get kathleen sebelius to either give her approval or disapproval of this style of ad? >> well, you know, i don't think -- it really doesn't have anything to do with the secretary, because it wasn't coming from colorado's state-based marketplace much less the federal marketplace. so she really had no idea that this was going to be happening. this was really something that we were doing to try to raise awareness among young adults. >> all right. so connect for health colorado says 3,164 people enrolled as of october 29th. explain to us the campaign and the minds behind this. obviously you look like a young
. recent "saturday night live" skit mocking health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was spot on. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. [ laughter ] >> in total, 248 people enrolled in obama care nationwide by the end of day two according to an internal obama administration memo obtained by that oversight committee. adding to the list of white house whos is the fact that the vast majority of those signing up on state exchanges are signing up for medicaid while a much smaller number are signing up for private insurance, the administration says it will release official enrollment numbers in mid november, but, if the numbers are as bad as these reports suggest, what will the president do? joining me now to react from washington, d.c., democrat strategist julian epstein. julian, six? you couldn't make this up. if i had said six, they would call me crazy, racist, who know what is they would call me. six. >> i'm the first to acknowledge that there have been a lot of problems
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius again on capitol hill today being grilled over the obama care rollout difficulty. >> this as the president heads to texas tonight to talk up his signature law but bertha coombs joins us with today's edition of how obama care turns. bertha. >> bill, you know, there are some in the hearing today calling for kathleen sebelius's head right to her face. interestingly enough the centers for medicare and medicaid services cms announcing its chief information officer tony trunkle will be stepping down effective next week. he oversaw the payment over i.t. services and he was according to some documents one of the officials who helped to prove the delay of a full security assessment of healthcare.gov. miss sebelius certainly got a lot of heat from both sides. max baucus warning her that if the website is not going to be fully operational at the end of the month she had better not wait until the last minute to tell congress and the american people. among the most contentious back and forth questioning coming from texas senator john cornyn over if you like
the original lie. so much more of that today. health care secretary kathleen sebelius kept defending the health care bill on chill and president obama just wrapped up a cheerleading rally in texas. >>> later, we have an all-star political expert panel learning the key lessons from chris christie's big win, ken cuccinelli's narrow loss and how big obama care will play in the 2014 races. hint-hint, a big role. stay with us for that. >>> meanwhile, free market capitalism, the best path to prosperity. i'm kudlow and we will be right back. >>> welcome back >>> welcome back live to "the kudlow report." let's get you updated on the big breaking news of the day on obama care. first up, the technology chief responsible for the catastrophic failure of healthcare.gov website is leaving to take a job in the private sector. really? who in hell would hire him? anyway, health secretary katr a kathleen sebelius got another grilling on capitol hill, this time from the senate finance committee. kansas senator pat roberts called for the former kansas senator to resign. >> your main goal should have been to prote
on capitol hill, earlier today, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was not sounding very confident. she was saying they're going to have it done by the end of the month but she said they have an aggressive check list to go through, an aggressive time line to meet. sort of putting out this feeling that programs it may not happen in time. the president said in dallas, this is happening in time. the other important thing, and i'll say this very quickly. the president did not go back to clean pup line if you like your plan, you can keep it. he did not try to revise that line as he did the other night. perhaps an indication that they know that clean-up job was not going too well. >> let me ask you this. the hits keep on coming for the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. it died down a little bit. it felt like it but now gaining heat again on capitol hill. getting a tough grilling. what exactly happened there? >> well, she was pressed by senators throughout this hearing about the various problems with the website, the veracity of the president's comments when
what some saw as a less than ringing endorsement of kathleen sebelius, saying she isn't to blame because she's not an i.t. person. with us now, former white house deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush and fnc contributor karl rove, and columnist for "the daily beast" and fnc contributor kirsten powers. welcome to you both. kirsten, i'll start with you. do you think that the president's made enough of an apology at this point to express that he feels what people are going through and takes in some way responsibility for telling them they could keep their plans when we know the administration knew to some extent they wouldn't be able to? >> yeah, i mean, i think it is an apology. maybe people want a little more self-flagellation or something, but he definitely did apologize. it was a little too late, i would say, after they had, you know, come out day after day kind of acting annoyed a bit that people were complaining about this and a little put out. and then i think they realized that it was getting out of control and they were going to have to do something. so, the ne
that the health care rollout has been a disaster. the website doesn't work. we will have kathleen sebelius the head of hhs on the phone as we speak talking to reporters trying to it out it. democrats are nervous in congress right now. let's not forget, heading to the midterm elections specifically in the senate, there are several senators that are in danger of losing their seats if democrats lose five or six seats, they lose control. >> i've talked to administration officials who believe once they get the website fixed that not all of their problems will be solved but things are going to get much bet per. when people start to see the law is working and the website is working, be yes there were folks who lost coverage and that was not good for the president but feel some of this could disablize. >> i think that's true. the one problem right now you have to take into account for the democrats is that the narrative is being drawn right now. even if it does stabilize, there's still going to be an after effect and still the obama administration trying to get democrats to be support of it, even
